  • maxy

    Some Person got banned or is it my idea?

    • Sunset

      Get..

      • The Anonymous Doctor

        I think he is from another country so cool it with the grammar corrections

      • maxy

        I think its right.

    • majorasshole

      Proves they’ll read our comments, but only if we argue about racism… Hoorah?

      • The Anonymous Doctor

        What kind of comments did Some Person make?

        • majorasshole

          Well I believe first someone was saying ms was incompetent for always having problems changing prices… Then Some Person was saying it was because of regions and it’s not really their fault… The OP said something about customer support only being indians and I’m pretty sure it went downhill from there… but I just skimmed over it so I don’t know too much.

          • The Anonymous Doctor

            He seemed like the kind of guy who thinks he knows everything and that he is absolutely right.

          • majorasshole

            Yeah plus he seems stubborn… but he was attacking the guy who was being racist so idk if that’s why… it might be because he just argues with everyone? or maybe he deleted his own stuff idk… I’m just guessing

          • maxwell

            Wow, they banned someone for not being racist? Fascists!

          • The Anonymous Doctor

            He might have been using foul language and threats but I’m not sure the comments were deleted.

          • maxwell

            imma gonan say no i say he posts he was mostly helpful cept for wit like two peolpe who gave him a hard time i just said i were done with xbox cuz of racists and i mean it there aint no excuse for dis

          • The Anonymous Doctor

            Well I don’t know but he did like to start problems with others. So that’s maybe why.

      • maxy

        He is a racist, no surpise there.

    • Ross Kemp

      That’s wonderful .

  • majorasshole

    I agree and I think a good way to win them back and also help encourage developers would be good digital sales or just making most of their catalog closer to the going rates at retail stores… They had GwG before spencer and I think (recently) they haven’t been too appealing (for me at least). As someone who as a 360 the sales and overall decisions of the company don’t make me want to drop a couple hundred on a new console… (Honestly I’m more interested in enjoying some 360 or original xbox games I’ve missed… and if they had more titles or better prices I think I would buy a ton of their digital games… but it’s either all the same titles or it’s more than I would like to pay)

  • Bennijin

    Bioshock Infinite £6.59: Nice price, season pass on sale next yeah?

    Modern Warfare 3 £19.99: Haha are you joking? You can get Ghosts for less than that.

    NASCAR 14: Unavailable in the UK. And nothing of value was lost?

    Peggle 2 £4.99: Kinda funny how this came out on December 9th on XB1 and May 7th on 360 yet the 360 version is already cheaper than the XB1 version was (£5.19) when it was on sale.
    Still, it would be less if it wasn’t for that UK price gouging Microsoft like to partake in now. Anyway, get it if you like it but all these Peggle games seem identical to me.

  • Ryan Ryan

    Xbox isn’t a bad brand. Xbox has the potential to hit Sony hard, but with lackluster efforts how will Microsoft ever get the profit they want? Xbox 360 did good for the 7th generation, xbox sold more software games than playstation. However what ruined the xbox is the red ring problem, so many malfunctions which cost billions(or millions).

    Xbox also needs to have variety like Nintendo which Sony also tries to do with their games, but actually test them out constantly(which nintendo does) to make sure the consumer likes them. Sony may have a variety of games but the gameplay isn’t always there and this why Nintendo excels since the gameplay is guaranteed to be fun.Many people may dislike Nintendo using the same series of character but Nintendo changes up the formula. Changing the formula makes the game better with each new release and Nintendo makes sure that each game is polish. Current day publishers and devs seem to lack in today’s time and try to update to fix the problem which isn’t always guaranteed(skyrim)

    • majorasshole

      I thought they handled the red ring stuff well… they extended the warranty so you could get a new one… I think what ruined xbox is that they stopped innovating and became content with the status quo and now they’re behind and trying to catch up… The changes from xbox to 360 were revolutionary and the changes from 360 to xbone was voice commands and windows 8…

      • Ryan Ryan

        I agree that the changes from both Xbox 360 and Ps3 successor’s are minimal, that’s true. Xbox wasted money by changing in system and the systems that they gave you weren’t guaranteed to work, some people had to keep on replacing them. The only model that was reliable was the new slim for the Xbox 360.

        For the games argument I think Xbox is looking more innovative than ps4 as of right now, they should keep on going foward.

        • majorasshole

          Well I don’t think it hurt them too bad cause they sold tons of 360′s and the slim should’ve been what they released… but I’m not impressed by “next gen”. Graphics aren’t a big draw for me… I thought late release games looked great. AC 4, Bioshock infinite, Gta 5 look amazing on the 360… I’d rather have good game play than gimmicks like kinect or snapping apps

    • Bennijin

      The thing is Sony made screwup after screwup with the PS3 in the early days, something people are so quick to forget. Why? Because when they were on the back foot (and especially after that hacking incident) they worked hard to do better by their customers and now look. You’d think the sun shines out of their backside.

      Microsoft’s in a similar position now to how Sony were then, but have been a bit slow on the uptake when it comes to doing anything about it.
      They can’t have that “I’m #1 So Why Try Harder?” mentality now because after losing focus for a few years they’re not #1 anymore and so need to try harder.
      Still, they’re in a good position with Phil Spencer in charge now

    • Professor Oak

      The red rings are no longer a problem. They are basically non existent on the Slim Models

    • majorasshole

      The vita has games it just doesn’t have system sellers like pokemon or mario…

    • Some guy

      Microsoft tried to make new IP when the 360 launched, outside Gears of war, how many can you name?

      • splashpaint

        alan wake was good,,i also like there arcade exclusives..shadow complex,state of decay,trial evolution..etc..

        • Some guy

          Yea, the arcades games are great.
          But even if was always about money, they tried to make money by making quality stuff, even if it meant losing money at first.

    • Harold Rivera

      And dont forget that Sony and Nintendo allow third party hard drives but M$ on the other hand…….

      • Professor Oak

        Xbox One Does…

  • ImTheMetalLord

    Why can’t we all just get along? Kumbaya my friends kumbaya!!

    • maxwell

      i were gonna buy an one when i went back to school in the fall but i deal with enuff racism on black ops 2 without seein that ms bans people for tryin to stop it they just lost a sale for sure

    • Naraic

      I here that the grief I have got over a comment I made on yesterday’s ultimate sale update is unreal

  • The Anonymous Doctor

    Do you guys think they will reveal next week’s sale? If there is anything good on that sale I might save some of my Xbox Live credit for it.

    • Some guy

      Come back in 2 hours for a first draft
      or look on xbldb

    • Some guy

      It’s a bioshock sale, great…

      • The Anonymous Doctor

        Well if it has BioShock 2 then I’ll pick it up. Where did you get the info from?

        • Some guy
          • The Anonymous Doctor

            Thanks. Looks like I will be grabbing BioShock 2 then.

          • Sal

            God. You’re still better off buying the season pass.. They could have just made the season pass 5-10$ off and exclude the individual price cuts… you still have to pay 20$ for both… :/

  • https://twitter.com/jaypx85 Alex

    Well since discussing this with support for 3 hours only got me
    crappy copy/paste replies like “the current price is the correct one”
    and right after that “It’s not available in my region.” I’ll just leave
    it here. Maybe someone will actually read it.

    Split/Second is still full price here in the Netherlands (€14,99). I checked the other Euro countires that were available. In Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Portugal and Spain it’s €3,74. In Italy €4,99.

    • Alvin Suen

      Split/Second is also full price in Hong Kong, but Taiwan has discounted price.

  • chris

    METAL GEAR SOLID V: GROUND ZEROES is $29.95 here in Australia. Anybody know if this is the discounted price?

    • Some guy

      My bet is that Australia is getting nothing as always.

      • chris

        I am talking to xbox support about this, it is taking a while to get them to understand what i am talking about.

        • https://www.facebook.com/DmcClan?ref=hl Alex Almoza

          Change your region to USA. Easy

          • AC130

            Not really; a lot of content is region locked and then the rest requires a NTSC console. Not viable at all.

    • Jared

      $10 in Canada

  • deadbox102

    I know it’s not even the halfway point in July, but has anyone heard any info on the update for August?

  • chris

    Bioshock 1 and 2 are on sale for $4.99, but Australia has it for $12, well I know I wont be buying it. Also Bioshock Infinite DLC on sale but not season pass, fail.

    • Jared

      MS Hate Australia

    • Chris Hofer

      Sure wish that Season Pass would go on sale! There’s still hope…maybe.

    • AC130

      They want to be rid of us backward gamers. :)

  • deadbox102

    Will there be titles other than the Bioshock series next week?

    • Jared

      that well be it from MS.

    • Does Not Equal

      Possibly. They have yet to change the permanent price drops for June or July.

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s fascinating
        .

        • Professor Oak

          That joke is getting old…

          • Ross Kemp

            That’s great .

  • Jim Charette

    ANyone know if SplitSecond is any good or better yet Peggle 2? A few hours left in the sale and I’m contemplating buying 1or both

    • Chris Hofer

      I really liked Split/Second. It’s a different take on a racing game, and I thought the controls handled really well. A good game from Disney!

      Also, I’m a Peggle fan, so I bought that one today.

      • Jay Rivera

        Too bad Disney didn’t feel the same way, considering the studio was shut down shortly after release.

    • Sigognac

      Two very different games.
      I have only played them for a few minutes yet, but for what I can tell you:
      Split/Second is a dynamic racing game witch charged visuals, in which racing is joint to explosive events on the road. In the lign of Burnout or Ridge Racer Unbounded.
      Peggle 2 is a friendly puzzle game for the family, colorful and simple to play. In the lign of Bejeweled 3, or Tetris.
      So for the graphic spectacle and high production value, and of course, if it is for someone who like racing or do not own something similar, I would suggest Split/Second first. Knowing that after the sale, it will come back to 20 $, while Peggle 2 will be downloadable for 12 $ if it still appeals to you.
      Obviously, you could have your reasons to prefer Peggle – for example, if it is for a family or more casual players that like puzzles. It is very simple,following the genre, and challenging. Sometimes, we have more pleasure from simplicity.
      Personnaly, I will probably acquire Split/Second.

  • Nikolaos K.

    wait a sec.. are you telling me that burial at sea episodes 1&2 cost 20$ while on sale which is the same amount as the season pass (also 20$) which is not on sale? So I gain exactly 0.0$ from this deal!!

    • Professor Oak

      DLC for game isn’t on sale

      • Nikolaos K.

        Burial at sea episodes 1-2 are currently on sale at 10 dollars each.. unless you mean something else.. P.S. I am talking about deals with gold which started today..

        • Professor Oak

          EDITED as NVM, didn’t check XBLDB

          • Nikolaos K.

            That’s ok .. it’s an honest mistake since they were just announced..

          • AC130

            Sebastian could not find deals Under the Sea.

  • ryder4life22187

    I knew bioshock was right around the corner. After this week im expecting a Rockstar sale of some sort.

    • AC130

      Then a Ubisoft sale and then a NBA 2K14 sales.

      • Sknots

  • cortez

    still better off with a season pass, now i wish i bought the season pass when it was on 30% sale

    • chris

      Are you sure the season pass has been on sale before? I am sure I would have bought if it was on sale.

      • AC130

        Yeah I think at least once late last year.

        • chris

          Just looked on xbldb website and it has one entry last year when it went from free to $19.99

      • cortez

        yeah it was between last year ending or beginning of this year. i remember not buying it because i thought the episode 2 would not be included

  • cortez

    at least i am getting battle theater free tomorrow i guess

    • Professor Oak

      Doesn’t go up until the evening. It changes on the 16th, not the 15th

      • cortez

        it was already the 15th in the UK

  • GodRealm

    Whats the set of weekly deals coming tomorrow? Anyone know?

    • https://www.facebook.com/DmcClan?ref=hl Alex Almoza

      Bioshock 1 and 2
      and 2 DLC’S for infinite

      • GodRealm

        Thats it?? Arnt there like another 20 new games on sale like the one that started last tuesday??

        • Ryan Ryan

          Just appreciate that there is a sale.

          • Jessie Pozos

            Dumbest comment of the week so far.

          • Ryan Ryan

            Microsoft have given there best out there. Respect them for giving you games to play!

    • Does Not Equal

      XBLDB dot com has them up early every week.

      • Ross Kemp

        That’s fascinating .

  • FiveMagic5

    Should I buy Deus Ex?

    • Dylan

      Yes, absolutely.

    • GodRealm

      I bought it..story is nice but its not anything to write home about. 7/10

    • cortez

      buy the directors cut version from Amazon for almost the same amount instead. it comes with all story dlcs, augmentations, visual enhancements, boss level reworked and companion app.

  • Honza

    Anyone know what is or will be in deals with gold for Xbox One ?

  • Cagateybaila

    OMFG, again a Bioshock sale? AGAIN?

    I’m glad my Gold subscription runs out this Friday.

  • cortez

    Whats the big deal with Peggle 2. its a terrible game and everybody wants it like free pizza

  • pulseimpact

    Considering you can buy MW3 with DLC 1 for under $20 on amazon and get it on ebay for under $10…what exactly is the point of keeping it at $50 digital? This is the one thing that bothers me about the marketplace. It’s one thing to be a little more or about the same as a physical copy, but that’s way overpriced.
